Staff Bag

17 posts in this topic

Ebay may be one of the greatest things ever......just picked up a brand new TM staff bag for $140.  I currently have the TM TMX stand bag which is nice but since I never walk and always use a cart and could use more room in my bag, I could not resist a steal like this.

Heh, I never thought of that, stitching my name in it.  I'll think about it......

as for the ball retriever.....I probably should get one but I don't have one.  If I hit a ball somewhere where I need that kind of tool to retreive it, then I should have to pay the price (a few bucks) because I hit the bad shot.  Knock on wood, lately I have been losing less and less balls.  I remember last year at this time when I would go through sometimes as many as 8 or 9 in a round and now there are times when I start and finish the round with the same ball!

Pure makes and excellent ball retriever grip. Stays tacky even after you fall in the creek, but then again any grip on a ball retriever will tend to be tacky by association. :-P

I just ordered it so I do not have it yet.  When I do I will post some pics.  I did however just add to my putter collection (remember I am very promiscuous with my putters).  I got my first circle t a little more than a month ago (Newport Squareback Prototype) and I like it a lot.  I always wanted a circle t Newport 2.7 though and I found one this morning at a great price.  Can't wait for it to arrive!

Bro, you can't use that putter.  It says clearly on the bottom "Tour Only".  Guess you're S.O.L.....

I received the package that should have been my staff bag that I purchased brand new off Ebay.  Instead of the Taylormade TMX Staff Bag, I received the bag I already have, a Taylormade TMX Stand Bag.  Needless to say I am pretty pissed off right now.  I'm sending it back and I do not want to do business with this seller ever again on Ebay so I just want a refund of my money.  I did find another staff bag that caught my eye and ordered it yesterday, hoping to have it by the weekend!

no it does not match my clubs (all of which except for putter are TM), but since I play Bridgestone balls, I figure there is atleast some connection....

Grats on finding what you wanted. SHitty that the seller screwed you like that on the original bag though.

I always found the staff bags to be way too big. Had a chance to pick up a Ping Staff bag cheap once, got my Ogio instead. Just not into the oversized bag look.

Though it would be great to have one at home to hold all of my extra clubs.

That's all mine does. Just sits in my closet and holds my backup set.

Ok, my curiousity has gotten the best of me.  What did the seller say when you contacted him about it being the wrong bag?

Good question....apparently the seller is not that concerned because they have NOT responded yet.  I opened an "issue" and sent a message on Tuesday night to the seller and as of now have had no response........

    • I cannot supply scientific data on the old fashioned knee action.  I have only anecdotal support for it. In my own game focusing on pressure shift in the feet is not a feel that's effective.  Last time out I was not at my best and part of it was focusing on my legs for maybe ten holes probably due in part to this thread.  I was beat down hard by the golfing gods.  They even took away my putting also but threw in good chipping to further screw with me haha! Sadly,  I can only admit I am not as athletic as those golfers with that hyperactive left knee.  It's my theory that this active knee motion contributed something to their action,  perhaps helping their sequencing or power or possibly protecting the spine,  but I can't put forth a good argument based on solid evidence.   The shots of Nicklaus above are fascinating.  It's hard to believe they did that with that unforgiving equipment. Photos like the ones of Nicklaus and Wright are just amazing to me to look at.  How the heck were they able to be so dynamic looking and still crush a tiny headed persimmon driver with a tiny sweet spot/clubface?  It truly boggles my mind.  
    • It's now 8 months since I started playing golf.  I'm fairly happy with the progress I've made so far... ...I've (mostly) got past the impulse to try and whack the ball really hard ...I've (mostly) learned not to overswing and start standing up in the backswing ...I get the concept of the hips starting the downswing rather than the arms, and can see how this causes the club head to rocket through at the bottom of the swing AND I seem to end in a good finish position ...that said, I have also learnt to move my hips at a moderate pace rather than too fast, as that was making me slice it - confused me for a bit but I get it now ...fat shots are now a rarity rather than a constant plague - tend to now only occur on uneven lies but not too often ...I'm not yet as consistent as I would like to be, but I hit the ball cleanish and straight most of the time ...chipping and putting is reasonable compared with my playing partners ...I would expect to get 4 or 5 pars in a round, and mentally before each hole I tell myself a bogey is ok so better to be short of the green with a controlled swing than in trouble with a wild one.  A double bogey or worse is now a disappointment however. I am also starting to get a reasonably good idea of my distances for each club.  What I have noticed, however, is that my distances are much shorter than my friends.  I can hit straight drives about 210 yards, a straight 4 iron about 150 yards, a 7 iron about 120 yards.  Now, I'm ok with this, I'm not bothered about outdriving them or being a big hitter - I know that trying to match them club for club will not end well for me. My question is, will my distances increase as my swing develops and gets more consistent?  Looking at some of the swing speed charts online - for what they're worth - maybe my driver swing speed is around 80mph for those distances?  My irons are Callaway X-16 with new Dynamic Gold R300 shafts.  Are these a heavier shaft, and would I see an improvement with different shafts?  I've no intention of changing them just now, but have my 40th birthday next year so a new set might be on the cards then. I'm really enjoying my golf at the moment, and am quite content with my progress, but the desire to improve is very strong - I guess this happens to a lot of new golfers.  How might I expect things to go from here on?  I've been working it out by myself and with the help of YouTube videos and books, and lessons are not an option - the nearest pro is two hours away. Cheers, Joe
    • Umm, the penalty he took is directly related to that. It would be strange not to emphasize the reason why he took the penalty. 
    • Does anyone have a picture of the pin chart for this course? It's usually on the back of the carts but I can't find it online.  Thanks. 
    • If the fitter did not give you an idea of what shaft you need, you did not get full service.
